The Fourth Of July  weekend is when summer really kicks off according to the Hookup and that is why it seems the ideal time to present Dr. Stephen’s annual list of the top ten beaches in America.

This North Carolina Beach Named One of the Best Beaches in the US

I have just discovered my favorite Carolina beach really in the past year.  My sister bought a place at Sunset Beach and now I am crazy about the Brunswick County Beaches.  Here is a peek!  I love them because they keep the natural landscape off the beach (the houses are way off the beach), there are no high rises , the beaches are wider and there is more of a small town feel.
